About our church

Our Mission: To enable seekers and belivers to become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ.

The Chinese Evangelical Church in Edinburgh was founded in April 1996. Our church worship was held at Holy Corner in Morningside for 8 years, before moving to our current location in Mayfield, in 2004. Although originally conceived as a bilingual Cantonese and English speaking Church, a rise in the number of Mandarin speaking people in Edinburgh has led to the inclusion of Mandarin in the Sunday Service. The church now has separate services for Chinese and English.

Brief Chronology of the Church

Sunday services held by the Chinese Evangelical Church in Edinburgh (CECE) started in May by a group of Chinese Christians. The group consisted of local residents and students originally from Hong Kong and Singapore. The aim was to worship and to share the Gospel with Chinese people in the Edinburgh area.
